They were on the surface shallow on tonka this a.m....which was weird since there was floating new super thin ice sheets out there..

We were also getting them at about 1.5-2 ft, over about 8 ft of water.

SUPER light bite.

Hit them on Lower Prior this evening in 12-14 fow. Tube jigs seemed to be the ticket as they were not taking my minows. Anyone else had luck on Prior?

We picked up some in 4-5 FOW, fishing low on Bald Eagle. Not many, 8-10, but it was only the kids fishing, as they either broke their rods or forgot them, so I let them use mine smile.gif I was trying to cast a 1/48 oz jig with a baitcaster smile.gif hehe, didn't work so hot.

Water was 42-45 degrees.

there in shallow water because that is the water that warms up the fastest. crappies are in the warmest water they can find tright now, like in bays, real shallow in deep water.i just punded them on saturday and sunday on prior. ran out of bait on saturday sdo i cam prepared for sunday but the bite wasnt as heavy but i still caught a bunch. jiggin worked in the peak times of the day but not in the middle of the day. had to resort to live bait in the middle of the day.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
